    Chromecast pauses when bluetooth headphones disconnect

    There's an option to pause the podcast when bluetooth headphones disconnect, but this should not apply when the podcast is being played on a chromecast in my opinion.

    This is on BeyondPod 4.0.17 Beta

    Hi, and welcome to the forum.

    There are all sorts of weird interactions between Bluetooth and Chromecast connections in Android (because they essentially use the same internal mechanism to route the output), which are not really in BeyondPod's control.

    For instance, I was watching some Podcasts via Chromecast recently, and found that if I moved to the next room without my phone, the playback also stopped. It eventually dawned on me that it was because my SmartWatch was losing the Bluetooth connection to my phone. The watch doesn't have a speaker or mic, so Android can't have thought that I'd disconnected my Bluetooth speaker, but it still paused playback anyway.

    I'll see if it's possible to isolate the pause on disconnect code to not work when playing via Chromecast, but it may not be a simple task!

    P.S. The beta is up to version 4.0.22 now.

    Yes, thank you Dennis. A bit of a blonde moment there
